Has anyone had a issue with the boot not locking?? It has had to myself now over a hand full of times. It seems like it is due to the plastic coating on the lock mechanism jamming in the lock.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Yes, but not on the Vitara (yet), even had it on an e39 BMW.
Clean any crud from it, spray with silicon.

There is a cut out (cant really describe it) on the underside of the boot door. My will only close properly when I use that with a gentle pull down. Slamming it shut does not work.

I find that at times my boot will not shut properly until I give it a good slam.which I don't like doing.was told that a friend had a vw beetle and the only way for his boot to shut properly was to have a window or door open.said it was to do with a vacuum in the car.

Check the alignment of the latch and (if fitted) the anti-vibration blocks are just touching the door frame.

Had this exact issue some time ago.... Discovered that it happens when you put a very heavy item in the trunk, which somehow dissasembles the lock cover (the piece of plastic right over where the trunk locks).
Whenever this happens, just push that plastic cover back in. You actually hear ir snapping back in.

But be careful, once I closed the trunk quite hard and it hit this plastic cover and got damaged. Had to permanently take it off.
